I-9 Right to Work Verification Checks

Recent focus on immigration in the news has brought much attention to the I-9 verification process. For employers, this process and associated compliance issues can be engulfing, to say the least.

Still, the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 established that it is illegal for U.S. employers to knowingly hire or recruit illegal immigrants AND that employers must be able to attest to their employees’ immigration status. Thus, essentially every employer in the US must act as a representative of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and do their part to ensure the right to work status of their employees.

Combined with IRCA, several states have introduced laws requiring that legal right to work (I-9) verification take place through the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) E-Verify system. This system certainly facilitates the process yet still leaves compliance issues, coordination, and administration of the process in the hands of the employer.
